There is a Johns Hopkins' Barrets Esophagus online forum with numerous pages of recent questions and answers and posts going back to prior months and years with a lot of information.. The people who post are very knowledgable with references and guidance. I myself recently had barretts esophagus with early stage cancer and did a lot of research to find a way to save my esophagus. I am now cancer free and clear of barrets with outpatient procedures at UC Irvine, Orange County CA.. I hope this will give you some encouragement. You probably are in an early stage so there is time for you to find a way to get help. Good luck and keep trying to get answers. A Friend
